So Long and Thanks for All the Legislation!!!

Goodbye 111th Congress and with that, I will close down this blog.  Even with all the frustration and filibusters, the Democratic Congress and the President managed a legislative output we haven’t seen since the LBJ days.  I’m sure there are other sites out there that catalog all the remarkable legislation passed and the session even ended with a bang with a lame duck session that was just amazing.

With Republican control of the House in the next session, that will make progressive legislation harder to pass but that doesn’t mean all progress has to stop.  There are opportunities for bipartisan compromise as well as the President’s executive authority and the judicial appointments that can make the judiciary a fairer body that upholds the law while also accepting a compassionate view – that one strike doesn’t mean you’re out, it just means a chance for redemption.
